Given the amount of hand wringing and oh my godding around the Ol’ Pussy Grabber getting the covfefevirus and we all must pray and wish him well otherwise you’re godless callous cruel sadistic heathens by MAGA and the conservative wing of society, you’d think they really took to heart the quote oft attributed to Uncle Joe Stalin: The death of one man is a tragedy. The death of millions is a statistic. And we all know the context of that saying, right? It was said about the dead in World War II whether it was by Stalin or the enigmatic German satirist, Kurt Tucholsky found in his 1932 essay on French humor (Darauf sagt ein Diplomat vom Quai d’Orsay: „Der Krieg? Ich kann das nicht so schrecklich finden! Der Tod eines Menschen: das ist eine Katastrophe. Hunderttausend Tote: das ist eine Statistik!“).
It seems like the conservatives among us are thinking along those same lines. If Trump were to die of the covfefevirus, it would be a tragedy, but the 214,000+ real live dead Americans, meh, they’re a statistic. People are gonna die; what are you gonna do? But with so many dead, no body will care too much. It’ll become normal. #SilverLining, know what I’m saying?
Real fucking Stalinesque performance. So, download this meme and spread it far and wide. It expresses exactly what the conservative pundits are saying about our #COVID19 dead.
